Who: Joan Jensen, Ben Motoyama, Darlou Yarborough and Cheryl Yarborough, all of Lodi.
The trip: In April, friends Joan Jensen, Ben Motoyama, Darlou Yarborough and Cheryl Yarborough of Lodi embarked on a 15-day cruise from San Francisco to Hawaii aboard the Star Princess. After four days at sea, the ship made stops at Nawiliwili, Kauai; Honolulu, Oahu; Hilo, Hawaii; Maui; and Ensenada, Mexico.
Highlights: In addition to enjoying the ship’s amenities at sea, and the beautiful scenery on the islands, the highlight of the trip was in Honolulu where Darlou’s granddaughter, professional golfer Lisa Ferrero, was playing in an LPGA tournament. The group was able to follow Lisa for the last 9 holes of the tournament, and it was quite a thrill to see her and the other lady golfers in action.
Would you go again? This was Darlou and Cheryl’s first cruise and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We probably will not cruise to Hawaii again, but another cruise is definitely a possibility-there are so many beautiful places to visit, and cruising is so much fun!
